A Reality Check for the AMPTP

Publish date:

For those of you not interested in battling demons with Spike and Faith (see the Buffy post below), help the Writers Guild send a message to the AMPTP when they picket this afternoon outside Fremantle, one of the world's largest suppliers of high-end reality fare. Fremantle makes millions of dollars off shows like American Idol, The Price Is Right, Family Feud, Temptation, The Next Great American Band, Farmer Wants A Wife, and America's Got Talent. All of these shows use writers... and none of the writers get health insurance, residuals, pension contributions, or proper credits.

So join the WGA for this afternoon's Reality & Game Show Rally and Informational Picket at...

WHERE: FremantleMedia North America, 4000 W. Alameda Blvd (1 block east of
Pass Avenue), Burbank.
WHEN: 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Speakers scheduled to appear include: WGAW President Patric M. Verrone, SAG member/actress Alfre Woodard, and writers Aaron Solomon and Kai Bowe. Tenacious D. (Jack Black and Kyle Gass) will also perform live.
